We really enjoyed Torment: Tides of Numenera as it launched in late February (read our review), but we did note more than a few performance issues that soured the experience.

It's taken until now for developer InXile to address these with a patch as the aptly named "performance patch" drops on PS4 and Xbox One (out now), as well as PC (expected today).

"Since the release of Torment: Tides of Numenera, we've been working extremely hard to iron out the bugs our community and media reported", says CEO Brian Fargo via press release. "We're pleased to announce that we've eliminated a lot of bugs and optimised the game even further on all platforms and I'm sure that it will allow our fans to enjoy the game even more."


Here's a list of things that have been sorted thanks to the patch:

· Fixes many freezes that would happen in various situations.

· Numerous performance optimizations.

· Addendum text now appears on item descriptions. Dozens of items have more detailed descriptions depending on your lore skills and other factors.

· Fixes an issue that was preventing party members from bantering. Party members should now be much more talkative.

· Updates crisis sequences to rebalance a number of enemies. In certain situations, it will make combat proceed more quickly.

· Numerous fixes and improvements to movement grid, pathing, and AI. This should prevent issues where the game would hang in combat.

· Several quest and conversation fixes.

· Inspiring Presence and other looping sound effects have been reduced or removed.

REVIEW. Written by Bengt Lemne

"It's an RPG that almost borders on a visual novel given its heavy reliance on text and story over combat, grinding and character development."
